Yippee! Photos are back up and running!

Back to the Kewpies, as a request from Claudia from Germany!

(I love playing with them anyway, this is an EASY request for me!)

The paper is by Daisy D's, called "Beacon Hill Stripe". It's sort of a bright, in your face paper, but I wanted you to see that you don't HAVE to go vintage with the Kewpies. They're just fine with more modern, brighter colors. This time Kewpie is indeed, NEKKID. I ALWAYS use Stampin up Blush Blossom ink for flesh tones. Remember, start coloring from left to right, so the intense color starts at the edge of your image and lightens up as you go across. Add more intense color, blending as you go. Left dark, middle/medium, right, light. I learned more from my drawing teacher last night, but I only know enough to be dangerous, so I'll wait on the toot until I get more info. I outlined the net, the flutterby and the bald Kewpie head with a Sakura gelly roll glitter pen, to make it look like the sun is glinting off of them! There are flowers from the set stamped in white craft ink along the bottom of the card. Kewpie set is by Clearartstamps/Crafty Secrets. (

I found a great source for the Crafty Secrets clear stamps: Anna Wight carries all of them in her ebay store. Here is the link if you're interested! Anna's store!
